We loaded up with everything we thought we'd need for a week+ trip. I'm happy to say that i basically used everything i packed bar a change of clothes. And still had plenty of storage place left.
I wasn't hindered at all by this set up...

It all packed out to this.

damn...I'm impressed. How'd you fit that shed on your bike...?

My size helps keep the front end down, though it's still a lil wheelie happy. The teddy bear is from my daughter, she gives me a different animal to take with on all my bigger trips. On the Kentucky trip I set up a base camp and went out for day trips stopping on the way back to camp each night for firewood and ice for drinks.

Here is my setup from a camping trip this weekend on the Utah Pony Express Trail and Great Basin National Park. This was my first motorcycle camping trip and I think I did pretty well with a lot of help from this thread.

Parking lot before leaving work


Veiw from the back at the entrance to Great Basin


The right Pelican case (1550 I believe) has clothes, a gallon of water, and a tire inflator. The left has my tent, sleeping pad, and Camelbak. My big +20 degree sleeping bag and ThermaRest are strapped to the seat. In the top case I have a cooler with beer, bag of food, toothbrush, Keen sandals, and Nalgene bottle. The left tool tube has a fork and spoon and flashlight; the left has a bottle of Gatorade. The larger one in place of a left exhaust has a tire repair kit, first aid kit, can opener, and other various things. Under the seat I have extra glasses and gloves.

Set up at Wheeler Peak Campground at Great Basin National Park


It began hailing when I started putting up the tent, which is why it's wet in that picture. Luckily the tent sets up pretty quickly.

The tent is a Sierra Designs Lightning HT2, which is very light and packs to a length of 18 inches. I could fit my Big Agnes sleeping pad in the tent bag and put it neatly in the bottom of one of the Pelican cases. The tent is waterproof and windproof, which I learned the first night at Simpson Springs campground.

I don't think I'll bring the Camelbak next time as wearing it was uncomfortable and I did not need the water where I was. The Nalgene + gallon was plenty between stops. I plan on also getting a smaller sleeping bag and being able to carry everything inside the cases. I'd like to get a small JetBoil style stove as well.
